MRI * Peek-a-Boo * Can't run and hide
I was taken to a big room and in it is what looked to me like a big "missile". The two women "working the missile" mentioned starting off with the IV .....(I realized I should have done a little homework here on what I was getting myself into.) As the IV was going into my arm, I felt like I was tasting nail polish. I was told after that to get up and lie face down. Yep, there it is again....instead of one big hole, there were two big "peepholes" staring back at me waiting to place both my breasts through. UGH. I'm lying there breasts hanging down with one person grabbing my left boob on one side, the other person grabbing my right boob on the other side. This is really getting "pleasant". I was told it would take 25 minutes for the whole process. As I was inside the "missile", all alone in the big room, my head began to pound. I felt lightheaded realizing I can't run and hide. This moment is one of those moments of feeling very alone. No one is living "it" like yourself. Then I realize you have to face it head on.....and kick it in the butt.
